    All new members are allowed 6 concurrent games without subscription. I would suggest that all genuine users (members who move daily and complete games) be allowed an additional two concurrent games per year of dedicated use of the Redhotpawn service.. Any comments folk/site persons..

    I suggest that when they join, all non subs are able to play 0 concurrent games. If they show that they are genuine players by moving daily and completing games, we can give them two extra games so they are able to play 2 games at a time.

    good suggestion. maybe gain 2more games at 6 months and get to 6 games after ayear, nothing worse than playin against people who are bored at work for a couple of hours..

    This is a correspondence site. Some people may be away from home for a day or two (I just was), and the nature of the site, quite intentionally, accomodates that. Get over it.

    I think you have it backwards. After having been here playing 6 games at a time for free after 1 year that should be lowered to 4 games. Another year of playing for free, you have 2 games available.

    What is the sense in rewarding someone for using the free features of a site while others pay to play?

    Any reason why non subs can't just pay the small fee to enable them to play more?

    The last time I suggested $30-$40 is a lot of money in certain parts of the world I was called a liar...I maintain that subs are too expensive to certain nations present here, but I'm saying no more before I'm boooed out of the premises once again

    It's true that in many impoverished parts of the world $40 is a lot of money.

    However, my philosophy is that if you can afford your computer, high speed internet, and spending a good amount of your day in from of your computer, you can probably afford a subscription too.

    Every member can have 8 games going at the same time. Even new members. Would you like to have more games? Just be a subscribing member and the problem is gone.
    And guess what, you will have unlimited number of games, tournaments, sieges, clans, - the lot!

    Another suggestion wuld be that everybody gets say 3 games free and say a number like 5 or 7) games being challenged by a subscriber...then as a subscriber I would invest part of my subscription to play people I want to play (sub or not) and the non-payers get some games of their chosing and the possibiliyt to play more if they have someone who wnats to play them.

    Such is life.

    You buy what you can afford, and if you can't afford it you take the freebie option.

    For example, after buying your subscription
    You had none left over for humility

    Never knew you could buy humility. That would be such a waste of money.
